- Solid day. Attendance was well over 400 even with a number of families traveling for thanksgiving.
The music was good today too. I enjoyed playing guitar and will be playing again next Sunday.
We introduced a new song today recorded by Nicole Mullen, “Call on Jesus.” It was very enjoyable to do and both Renae and Beverly hit it out of the ball park on their solo parts! The rest of the singers did an exceptional job on their harmony parts too. The song kept rising and rising and then it just exploded with thunderous praise.
Sidney G. commented on Facebook saying, “Wow - No words to describe this morning's service...music AND sermon were UH-mazing!”
Sidney also said to Beverly, “Girl, you got some pipes.”
Wade C. did an exceptional job on the drums today, filling in for Greg G. who was out of town.
Cameron G. really stepped it up on the bass guitar too. He was louder than normal, very confident, and played his parts perfectly. I guess you could say he was rockin!
I most appreciate Wade & Cameron’s sensitivity, knowing when to step out with their instruments and when to step back. This puts tension in the songs we play and lends itself for big moments.
The message today was one of the most helpful I have shared in a long time – at least it was for sincere believers who really want to know how to please God and do the right thing when facing questionable activities.
Terri F. said of the message, “The message came across so simple and straightforward....and yet BAM! Right to the heart. :-)”
Susan H. said, “What a great word today!!! Thanks!!!”
Melinda G. said, “It was great.”
Beverly J. said, “WOW! Is what I have to say about today at Pace Community Church!! If you weren't there you missed out! The music was great! The sermon was great! The potluck lunch was great! Hangin out with some of the best people I know was great!”
Renae C. said, “GREAT food & GREAT fellowship at PCC... on the heels of a GREAT service. Man oh man do I ever LOVE my PCC family!”
Lynda P. says, “Had a great meal after church at Pace Community Church...Have not been to a "pot luck" in a while...there are some great cooks here :=)”
Ella M. says, “We had a wonderful meal we shared with our church family this afternoon, after church. I tried to count the calories, but I gave up.....”
Robert H. says, “It was a good day @PCC Good preachin! Good Fellowship! & Good Food ! We serve an awesome GOD!!!.... Oh yeah Preach on Pastor Ron!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Robert also said, “It all really made sense today in Pastor Ron's sermon regarding" What is God's Will Concerning Questionable Activities"
Mike C. says, “Church was good , I missed Christa being there. I ran in to an old friend from high school . Very nice to see Rhonda there, and Kay Harris at the picnic.. Very good weekend.”
Mike also said, “Ron, your message today was right on time. Very well done. You make it understandable.”
Kim U. says, “Can't say it any clearer than the way Ronnie preached it. You KNOW when you are sinning, you KNOW when you are not…”
I am very thankful that God’s Word is making this kind of penetration in people’s lives.
“Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalms 119:105)
After church we had a Potluck Thanksgiving Dinner on the grounds. It was a LOT of fun. Really enjoyed hanging with everyone. Also enjoyed getting better acquainted with some new people who have been attending with us for a couple of months now.
Shelby P. said on Facebook, “Church was so great today. I enjoyed sitting in the service with one of my favorite people, practicing for December's worship team with more great people and seeing a whole BUNCH of great people at the Thanksgiving Potluck. I love going to church on Sundays!”
The teenagers camped out Friday night. I’m glad to report than none came up missing.
I am cooking a turkey this week.
Next Sunday we are receiving Communion.
After it gets dark today Renae and I are going over to our property to pour gasoline on the yellow jacket nest in the ground.
Our office hours this week are Monday-through-Wednesday. We are taking Thursday and Friday off. We are going to cram a five days of work down into three. Plus, we have a funeral on the agenda. It’s going to be very busy for a few days.
My truck is broke down. I had to drive my son’s vehicle to church this morning and then catch a ride home with Renae after service. Tomorrow morning I’m having it towed to the shop. Oh joy. I hope I can get it out in a day or two. I don’t want to be without transportation all week long…. especially during a holiday break.
I wonder what it would be like to “live in a van down by the river.”
It’s been a busy week throughout the world…. Prince William got engaged; the Beatles finally made it to iTunes; Facebook is now going to be offering email, another movie came out about some kid named “Harry”… and BJ Penn knocked out Matt Huges in 21 seconds last night in the UFC. The world is starting to make sense again.
Florida State plays University of Florida next Saturday. I think FSU is going to win.
